If I wanted to get the conversion for Vanilla extract or coconut flavoring how do I do that?
How can we work towards expanding the ingredient list?

Amy:

It's difficult to list all food ingredients, and slightly redundant as the USDA has weight (in grams per cup (US)) for hundreds of ingredients. I'm not sure how you're wanting to convert but according to the USDA database, 1 cup of vanilla extract weighs 208 grams. Coconut water (liquid from coconut) weighs 240 grams/cup. Note that most coconut weights are in the category 'nuts'

There are actually 2 USDA databases I'm aware of for ingredient weights/volumes:
New database: http://foodinfo.us/Default.aspx
Older, slightly antiquated database: http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/
